Hi, I have downloaded D-Storm's DirectX exporter that it says will work with LW6.5. When I try and use it to export a scene, I get a popup that says it only works with version 7.0b.
Are there any other free exporters out there?
Thanks in advance!

but there's workarounds in other programs... for instance, I think if it's static, nonanimated, you can export a 5.x lwo file, import it in to trueSpace, and then export that as .x... problem with that is that truespace sucks at animation.... you can get a free version of the lite gamespace that will work with 600 or less polys at http://www.caligari.com/gamespace/gsl/gsl.asp ... .x is unfortunately not one of the file formats that is built in to lightwave, but it should be! In theory animated .lwo should go through ts, but in truth, last time I tried it it didn't work.... and yes, you do have to lower the export from lw to 5.6 I think or whatever that little 5.whatever box says because ts doesn't do newer versions of lwo formats :(
